And if you CAN'T take care of yourself, it's nice to have a back-up
person who can watch your BGs -- a spouse, a sibling, a good friend --
just be sure beforehand that they know how to test your BG and how to
treat a hypo if necessary. 

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and all that!
